Joseph Arthur - In The Sun


this is a poem i wrote in @2010

If you read my words love, know, in your heart, that they were not meant to kill you

They were meant to wound you, so you can heal

You told me once that you wanted to be a better man
To touch the hand of God

And, love, no one can cut you...but me, to the depth you need

You told me things about myself that cut me wide open

Things I needed to hear, that no one else ever dared to say

I saw myself, for once, for who I was, through your eyes

The bad, beautiful, ugly, broken, tragic, tender, loving, messy, insecure girl who needed a father/figure lover

A girl who cried in your arms, because it was the first time I was shown true tenderness

In that moment, I would have died for you. I was your moth, and you love, were the heat

I felt the universe course through my heart, right then, and you were the best thing in it

You made me a room of my own...A room where I could be free, for a little while....

No one ever did that....for me

You let me tell you my secrets I had never told

You hurt me
You healed me

You gave me the courage to be a woman, not just a child

But she is still there, the child...

Love, take my words and let them comfort you in your hour of need

For, I bear no malice...
I only bear an unquenchable love for you....

And love does no harm

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
